Product description

The connection of steel balconies into concrete slabs (normally by different trades) gives rise to the need for considerable adjustability in the fixing method and the need to carry high loads whilst also minimising the effects of cold-bridging. The J-UK BALCON™, derived of JORDAHL® channels, neatly solves this design-dilemma hat-trick. BALCON™ arrangements offer multi-directional adjustment, are bespoke to each application and can also accommodate retro-fit balcony installations (e.g. for refurbishment projects).

The BALCON unit is a versatile assembly for joining metal balconies to a concrete structure.  Simplicity is the theme behind the design of the BALCON, from the installation stage through to the connection of the balcony by follow-on trades; making the BALCON useful and easy for all who need to work with the unit.

The BALCON is strong; meaning fewer connections are required to make sufficient structural fixings. It is a rigid fixing point; with no rotation, allowing the designer to focus on the supporting steel structure.

Tolerances add to the toolkit of benefits offered by the BALCON allowing follow-on trades to fix easily to the BALCON. Concrete tolerances are higher than those expected by the balcony manufacturer: the BALCON enables these trades to work in harmony, reducing the risk of site works that cost time and money.

The poor detailing of a thermal bridge can contribute to significant heat loss through the façade. The BALCON can assist in the reduction of heat leaks by reducing the impact of these losses. This is because there is potential for reducing connections through the façade where a FABREEKA_TIM shim adds to the thermal break.

So now you know BALCON, why not make it your next connection of choice?
